SUMMARY:
——————–

Most people don’t realize how unhealthy they are, until they start to become healthier. The state of being “not healthy, but not unhealthy enough to do anything about it” is a scary place to be in, because it only leads to one place…disease, and dissatisfaction. Most people gradually fall into an unhealthy lifestyle. I’ve never met anyone (yet) that has shared with me that they wanted to feel low energy, depressed and unfulfilled. But ‘life’ always seems to happen and the next thing they know, they are (for lack of a better term) ‘fat, sick and nearly dead.’ This state doesn’t happen overnight but rather for weeks, months and years. It’s a slow and gradual process that deceives.

The truth is that we are born to be vibrant, healthy human beings. It’s our birthright. But unfortunately, this right has been unappreciated by many, leaving us with the health crisis we’re experiencing. All it takes is a few simple choices and a little extra effort? Health is our greatest gift. Not convinced? Just ask someone who has recently lost theirs. It’s not pretty! Cancer, diabetes and heart disease wreak havoc on people and their families. The truth is that cancer, diabetes, and heart disease can all largely be prevented through making healthier lifestyle choices.

Why do so many wait till their health is on the line to finally make a change?

I believe it’s also this deceptive state of “not feeling healthy, but not feeling unhealthy enough to do anything about it.” Do you fall into this category? Do you know you’re eating the wrong foods and making poor lifestyle choices, which only give you short term fulfillment at the expense of your health? It’s time to make a change, to say goodbye to fast food and hello to healthy food fast, to start incorporating more exercise into your life, cultivating healthier relationships, finding the passion in your career or having the courage to make a change, reconnecting you’re your spirituality and making more time to do the thing you love. 

Don’t wait till you’re diagnosed with cancer, diabetes, heart disease or worse. You have a choice. When you finally start taking better care of yourself is when you really start experiencing what life really has to offer…more joy, more energy, more love, more fun and more success. 

I have great news. It’s not too late to make a change. As a matter of fact, it’s really never too late, because small choices lead to big changes. It’s through making small, consistent LIFESTYLE changes that lasting impactful results are experienced! And you are worth it! If you hope to bring health into your life in any kind of long-term committed way, you must connect with your “big why” or the deep tenacious emotional reason or reasons that lies close to your heart for wanting true wellness in both mind and body. This reason must be attached to what you value in life and where you see yourself going.

Only from connecting with this strong core reason and by connecting daily with the value behind it does the strength and motivation spring to keep you committed to making the necessary small changes every single day. Wake up to the realization that your life is your most precious gift and start valuing it as so by taking action on becoming the healthiest, happiest, best version of yourself. You deserve to feel your absolute best, you owe it to yourself and the world.

Secrets To Fall In Love With Working Out

I believe in keeping it simple! By following these 6 simple tips, you will be well on your way to a physically balanced body and a healthier, happier you!

1. Plan it!
Not having a plan is like rowing to the middle of a lake and then dropping your oars. You must create a personal plan of action in order for your exercise strategy to be successful. First, know what you want to achieve, then map out a specific plan to get there. Keep your plan simple. One big reason many people fail when starting an exercise program is they make it too complex and get overwhelmed. By following the tips in this video you will be off to a great start.

2. Make time!
You’ve decided to start, now MAKE the time to incorporate exercise into your lifestyle. There are 24 hours in a day, every day we get them and every day we use them. It’s not about more use of your time, it’s all about better use. Think about how much time you are willing to devote to improving your physical body per week. Then ask yourself, “What time of day works best for me?” If you’re a morning person, set aside some extra time each morning to exercise. Make a schedule of when you will exercise and stick to it!

3. Make it fun!
If you don’t like jogging, then don’t jog. This should be common sense, right? Wrong. So many people stop exercising because they start their program with activities that they don’t really enjoy …let’s save those activities for the company holiday party. Instead, let’s make exercise fun!
There are so many ways to get fit. A few of my personal favorites are: weightlifting, yoga, pilates, walking, jogging, swimming, playing sports and bike riding. Think about what you like to do and go from there. Still lost? Check out classes at your local gym for ideas or better yet, try some of my favorite ways and see what works for you.

4. Mix it up!
Adding variety is essential to a successful exercise program. Think outside of the box… Include different types of activities in your exercise routine and think about different places you can do those exercises. One of my favorites is jogging along the beach. Adding variety to your routine is essential to achieve a physically balanced body.

5. Outcomes – Set & Track them!
Notice how I didn’t say goals. Goals are either achieved or not achieved. Outcomes, on the other hand, are measureable. By setting outcomes and tracking them, you will be able to see your progress overtime and stay motivated you to keep it up.
Set some realistic outcomes for what you want to achieve. It could be that you want to drop 10 pounds for summer to fit into that new bikini, or maybe you want to complete a 5K that has been on your bucket list. Once you have your outcomes set, track your progress. Not only will this ensure you are achieving your outcomes, it also drives you to stay on track!

6. Ask for help!
Don’t be afraid to seek out a qualified exercise professional for assistance. They will help you create a safe, effective exercise program. By hiring a pro, you can be assured that you are doing the exercise with proper form and maximizing your efforts in a safe and effective way. Additionally, you will have someone to hold you accountable, help you stick to your action plan and push yourself past mental barriers. Which usually is the only thing standing in your way to success?
